It can if you want to. It can also upgrade your system to PRO if needed.

I'd like a Zorin OS Updater to update the OS as the actual Software Updater sometimes hangs some seconds and then minimizes itself after clicking Install and can crash after selecting some updates.

Huh? Never uses it.

And how do you update your OS then? Do you use another software or update via terminal?

via terminal. When you can your apt on your fingertips it's easier.

Have you upgraded all packages, first?

sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

Then run the Zorin OS Upgrader and see what output it gives.

I support the idea of making backups first. The blog post clearly states this is in Beta, and I'm sure they have thoroughly tested it, but doesn't hurt to make a backup just in case.


still says no upgrade did what ya said.

Let's notify the ZorinGroup directly and see if this is an issue to be resolved. This is the Beta version released for Public Testing, after-all. :wink:

And ZorinGroup now Notified.
